Serendipity Earring Caddy

I have a huge collection of dangly earrings. I invented this caddy to keep them all in order.

What’s it made of? Gutter Guard – one of the cheapest items you’ll find in your local hardware store! Pick up a roll and make a caddy for yourself, a few for friends and use the rest to line your gutters to keep the leaves out.

This project uses the random collage technique sometimes called “serendipity collage”. My colour scheme is blue and purple, but you might like to use different colours to coordinate with your own bedroom.

Materials:
-2 strips of 250gsm black card: 30mm x 297mm and 40mm x 297mm
-297mm length of “Gutter Guard” (from hardware shop)
-300mm length of fine black wire
-Scraps of blue, purple and metallic gold paper
-Scraps of white and black cardstock
-Stamps by Studio Astarte: “Flourish” (medium), “1920’s Ladies Heads”, and “Décor” (small)
-Blue and teal ink pads
-Eight large flat sequins or rhinestones
-Very strong double-sided tape, like “Terrifically Tacky Tape”
-Floral shape paper punch
-PVA glue and glue brush
-Scrap paper to cover work surface
-Scissors or craft knife, metal ruler and cutting mat

Method:
Stamp Flourish randomly onto a large scrap of blue paper using blue and teal inks. Tear into smaller pieces. Punch out three or four floral shapes from metallic gold paper. Tear remaining paper into smaller pieces.

Lay coloured scraps and punched shapes face down on scrap paper. Use brush to apply a thin coat of PVA glue. Randomly stick scraps onto the two strips of black cardstock, overlapping occasionally. Allow some scraps to extend beyond top and bottom edges of the black strips. You will trim them later.

Stamp the Ladies Heads and Décor onto white cardstock. Cut out individual images and glue these to the two black strips. From scrap black cardstock, cut a few “matchstick” size strips and glue these so they extend a little beyond the top and bottom of the collaged strips. Carefully trim away scraps that extend beyond the top and bottom edges of the collaged strips.

Glue sequins or rhinestones on at random. Set collaged strips aside so glue can dry.

Roll Gutter Guard into a cylinder shape, overlapping ends by one square. Secure wire at one end, then weave the wire up the entire length of the cylinder, pulling and wrapping tightly.

Attach a length of Terrifically Tacky Tape to one end of the reverse side of each collaged strip. Remove the protective backing. Wrap the 30mm collaged strip around the top of the Gutter Guard cylinder, as snugly as it will go before securing the tape. Repeat with the 40mm collaged strip at the cylinder’s base.
